The full-size Nikon Prostaff 5 8x42 Binoculars are made for comfort while offering 8x magnification. Thanks to its 42mm multilayer coated objective lenses, images are brighter and have higher contrast. It features a fibreglass-reinforced polycarbonate body with a rubberised housing for shock resistance. Combined with its water and fog resistance, the Nikon Prostaff 5 is perfect for all your hunting and viewing needs.
The Prostaff 5 magnifies objects to up to 8x and has a 6.3o field of view that offers you wide angle viewing ideal for landscapes and hunting. The 42mm objective lenses provide brighter images even in low-light conditions. Thanks to the wide 5.25mm exit pupil, full scenes remain in view despite eye dilation in low-light so you can focus on your subject at any time of day. Its large focus wheel also makes it easy to control the internal focussing mechanism and capture finer detail.
Multilayer Coated Lenses
The environmentally friendly Eco-Glass lenses are free from arsenic and lead, and boast a multilayer coating. This transmits more light across the whole spectrum to offer you higher colour fidelity and starker contrast for beautiful, clear magnification. The phase correction coating reduces reflection and corrects any aberration from the roof prism to ensure clarity.
It’s comfortable to use the Nikon 8x42 Binoculars whether you’re wearing prescription glasses or not, thanks to the twist-up, multi-click eyecups. The dioptric collar on the right eye piece allows you to adjust the focal length for eye prescriptions while rubber eyecups work together with the clear field of view for a customised optical experience for maximum comfort for long periods.
Light and Durable Build
Featuring a fibreglass-reinforced polycarbonate resin housing, the Prostaff 5 is durable and light for ease of travel while also being temperature resistant. The roof prisms ensure durability while minimising the bulk of the optical tubes, making it easy to carry for long periods of time.
Covered in a comfortable rubberised casing, the binoculars are slip resistant while the grips along the optical tubes are ergonomically designed to offer a secure grip, so you can use it in cold weather, wet conditions or with gloves. The rubber armour is also shock resistant, so you can take it to the roughest terrain with peace of mind.
Water and Fog Resistant
Featuring nitrogen-filled optical tubes and an O-ring seal, the Nikon 8x42 Prostaff 5 Binoculars are waterproofed to up to 1 metre. It also serves to prevent internal fogging through temperature changes. The Prostaff 5 also includes a tethered ocular rain guard for the eyecups to prevent unnecessary pooling from water spray.
